Hello Everyone. Hope your holiday weekend is going well and you are doing whatever brings you joy. I have my 3rd card for the Coffee Loving Card Makers Hop to share.
I saw the colors for this weeks CTD challenge and thought I would make a card using the challenge colors. I will be linking it to both. The challenge links are below.
On with the design and ingredients.
It’s a coffee note card with lots of layers and dimension. I have been wanting to use this back ground stamp again in some way and thought his worked well with the design. The background says it all about coffee and friendship.
I stamped it in distress oxide in iced spruce and trimmed it down. Then cut a dark gray panel for a mat and glued it down in a wonky fashion on to the white card base.
I then worked on the small focal panel and used a scrape of lawn fawn plaid and a light gray card stock.
The cup is stamped in sepia and watercolored with Distress Oxide in fossilized amber. I don’t have a die so the cup was fussy cut. The heart shaped steam was stamped in Simon Says Stamp Hybrid ink in stone.
I used some Wink of Stella on the heart stream and covered the coffee with Nuvo Crystal glaze for some shine.
The focal panel is popped up on foam squares.
Paper: 80# and 110# Neenah white, Simon Says stamp in gray tones, and scrap of Lawn Fawn yellow plaid.
